Customise MyApps using Workspaces in Azure AD

In this post I am going to go through how to customise the way the myapps portal looks for your end users using workspaces in Azure AD. Workspaces essentially group apps together to make it easier for end users to navigate.

Enable the MyApps Preview Feature

Creating a Workspace

  • In Azure Active Directory Choose “Enterprise Applications”
  • Click Workspaces
  • Create a New Workspace

image

  • Enter a Name and Description for the Workspace and click Next

image

  • Add the applications you want to be part of this Workspace and click Next

image

  • Add the Owners who will manage this Workspace and click Next

image

  • Add the Users/Groups who you want to actually see the workspace when they go to Myapps

image

  • Click Review and Create
  • Click Create once you are happy with your configuration

End User Experience

Now when a user goes to https://myapplications.microsoft.com they will see the Workspace. They can also navigate out of the Workspace and choose All apps to see the full list of apps they have access too as they always have been able to.

This was a fairly quick and easy blog post but it is a great feature to simplify the end users experience of accessing SAAS apps.
